Ex-Conn. coach charged after TV show appearance

Posted: Updated:

BETHANY, Conn. (AP) — A former Connecticut high school girls basketball coach who served prison time for having sex with one of his players has been arrested again after an appearance on the "Dr. Phil" television show this week.

46-year-old Frank Warecke of Bethany was charged in Mamaroneck, N.Y., with violating the terms of his 10-year probation. Authorities told WTNH-TV that Warecke cut off his electronic monitoring ankle bracelet in January.

Warecke and his wife appeared on "Dr. Phil" Monday for a segment about him being a fugitive.

Warecke was the girls basketball coach at Abbott Tech High School in Danbury. He served about two years in prison for having sex with the student in 2003 and is a registered sex offender.

A message was left Thursday at a phone listing for Warecke.
